Non-condensing Tankless

Non-condensing tankless water heaters are also called instantaneous or on-demand, and they do not actually store water. You can read more about tankless water heaters here. Tankless systems may not be the best choice for large households as they can’t provide enough hot water for multiple simultaneous tasks. However, they free up square footage because of their compact size and are highly environmentally friendly.

Pros

  • Energy Star models help reduce energy costs and your eco-footprint
  • Space saving in design
  • Lower price point compared to condensing models
  • Wall-mounted
  • Does not create condensation so a household drain isn’t required

Cons:

  • Most units will not work in the event of a power outage
  • There is an approximate 10-second delay for hot water after turning on the tap because water is heated only when it’s needed

Installed cost: $3,000 to $4,000
Life expectancy: Approximately 20 years
Recommended maintenance: At least once a year
